Read from the graph the "halflife" of "ORANGIUM" (the number of tosses it
took for half of the total cubes to come up with an orange face.)
[If the total # of cubes was 500, then how many tosses did it require for 250 of
them to come up with an orange face?
On the yaxis find 250; draw a line
horizontal to the xaxis (the dotted line) starting at 250 and stopping when it
reaches the curve.
Now starting at this point on the curve, draw a line parallel
to the yaxis (dotted line) until it crosses the xaxis.
Read how many tosses it
says it took to have 250 cubes come up with an orange face.
